Re: help me plan my season

another question in regards to CV intervals. What is approximately the optimum amount that one should attempt to complete in a workout? time and/or distance will suffice. Does 20 mins at CV intensity make for an optimum amount?

Re: help me plan my season

quick question regarding CV intervals.
if i were to do this on a grass field and go by time instead of distance, should I aim for 3 mins hard with 90 sec. easy? or would I run the appropriate time that it would take me to normally complete a kilometer of CV interval?

Yeah, that's right - better economy does not gaurantee better performance times. I have a print-copy of a study that shows that, somewhere at home. When I get a c...

Anyone used the summer of malmo program as a base for longer races 10 miler + up

I was planning on taking a break after a long season of training, been training for a good 6 months now. I'll probably take it easy for a week or 2 to recover and get back to normal miles. then I'm probably going to try and follow the program outline by malmo. Where he incorporates 2 weekly workouts...
